This remarkable property within The Cliffs at Glassy strikes a harmonious balance with its natural surroundings and 5.23 acres. It's seamlessly integrated into the landscape, offering an imaginative blend of architecture and nature. Upon arrival, the meticulously planned entrance sets the stage for the artistry and sophistication of this unique home. A bridge, adorned with artisan metalwork railings crafted by John Boyd Smith, an award-winning artist blacksmith, spans over a serene water feature. The entrance experience continues with a handcrafted copper door outlined by locally designed stained glass transoms. Entering this "Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired" dwelling is a revelation of design elements and abundant natural light, illuminating its organic beauty. The entrance leads to an unexpected view of Paris Mountain and the shimmering lights of distant valleys. A great room, complete with a stone fireplace, gas logs, and an indoor water feature, creates a serene space for contemplation or conversation. Beyond the fireplace, a deck with forged metal railings and porcelain tile provides a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors. Here, a handcrafted light fixture, designed to mimic every leaf on the property, serves as both artwork and a conversation starter. Relax with friends around the wood-burning fireplace or unwind in the spa while basking in Glassy Mountain's beauty. Throughout the main living area, sealed slate floors reflect light with gentle luster, adding to the space's warm ambiance. The custom-designed gourmet kitchen features a large walk-in dish closet, bread cutting area, and butcher block countertop. With three sinks, a SubZero refrigerator, a wine chiller, an ice machine, and a 48-inch Viking range with double ovens, it's a haven for chefs.
